Mugler Cologne or Gendarme 20
Thread: A Fresh, Clean, and Soapy smell
Is there a good smelling cologne that smells Fresh, Clean, and Soapy. Something that will just make me smell clean like soap rather than a cologne with a bunch of spices. I was thinking maybe Polo Sport?
Prada Amber pour Homme

Versace Man Eau Fraiche
I'd say go for Prada Infusion d'Homme if you're looking for high-end, luxurious soap, or Fcuk Him if you're going for a low-end sort of "drugstore," deodorant and shower gel clean.
I refuse to sink.
Crabtree & Evelyn Sandalwood
Another vote for Mugler cologne. Also ck be.
I'm a Gendarme 20 fan. VERY clean- fresh linen kind of smell. The also make a KILLER of a bath soap too.
"20" is lavender and may be the strongest.
"V" is a little vetiver
Regular Gendarme very fresh but it has worst longevity.
I get pretty good legs out of "20" and my skin is a real scent sucker.

Or is it another type of soap you are looking for ?

The toxic soap for body lice? Azzaro Pure Vetiver
Definitely Prada Infusion d'Homme.
Hmmm soo many choices, Thanks for the suggestions.
I swear we just had this thread two days ago... Oh well.
Add my votes to Mugler Cologne, Prada Amber Homme and Infusion d'Homme.
Either of the Prada's for men, but especially the Infusion d'Homme
Puro Lino : a Fresh, Clean, and Soapy smell that lasts and lasts...
Before most of the above was Canoe by Dana. Cheap, no doubt, but lasts all day, giving off beautifully soapy yet crisp sillage. I have Gendarme 20 which is a beautiful frag, but prefer Canoe.

ointments and perfume delight the heart....
Agree with the Prada recs and also the Mugler.
Another to consider is Nautica Voyage. Smells like the blue irish spring, if i recall correctly. Well, it smells like some blue bar of soap.
I was on this quest before myself. Hands down: Prada Infusion d'Homme.
I have Puro Lino, Gendarme, etc etc but IdH is flat out the best quality, longest lasting clean, soapy scent out there.
I didn't find that IdH had much longevity. Am I crazy here? I loved the scent otherwise, but its poor longevity was a kicker for me.
I agree with Prada Infusion d'Homme & Mugler Cologne..
Both are favorites of mine
Also you might want to try Comme Des Garcons Anbar, very fresh and clean.

Might I also suggest Francis Kurkdjian's Cologne Pour le Matin. It's similar to Prada Infusion d'Homme but less synthetic and harsh, and less soapy (you may very well, like me, fine IdH *too* soapy)
